Game Mode News



Masters!

After our announcement regarding the cease and desist of all our modes except for 1v1 and 2v2 in Minion Masters remastered, we heard your feedback and we've decided to do something about it!

We're super thrilled to announce that we're creating a new mode for Minion Masters Remastered. With this mode, we'll be collecting a lot of your feedback and you'll even help us name it! 🙂

Introducing Chaos Mode! (Name to be defined)

  • Chaos Mode (working title) is a new game in Minion Masters 2.0.
  • The mode will be centered around drafting but may expand over time to include different modes of play.

Event System

  • Every 2 weeks, a new event will start, which changes the pool of cards that will appear in the draft.
  • An example of such rules is the Faction Wars event: During this event, each Master will only have access to a unique selection of 3 factions.

Drafting Rules

Drafting works as usual, where you draft a master and 10 cards, with a few new changes added changes to the rules:

  • +33% chance of cards from faction(s) player has picked will appear. This helps you build up synergies in your deck more easily.
  • Redrafts: Redrafts is a new currency that lets players redraft a card. They let you redraft a card in your deck and can be used in-between matches. You will start with 1 Redraft token, and you gain 1 more each time you lose.
  • The card ban list is gone. With the addition of faction bias in card picking, the redraft feature as well card pools being limited by event rules, the card ban list is no longer needed.

Rewards

There are two types of rewards in Chaos Mode:

  • Win Rewards: You gain rewards based on how many wins you achieve. These rewards have been rebalanced to be more rewarding (including supreme, legendary cards, rubies, card slots, and Season Pass tiers!)
  • Event Rewards: These rewards can be claimed only once per event. They can be claimed the first time you win 3, 6, and 10 wins within each event.

The Future

Chaos Mode will function as a platform for experimenting with new content to come, for example:

  • More different draft pool events.
  • New game rules.
  • Constructed mode (pick from your collection instead of drafting), combined with altered game rules.
We are extremely excited about this event, and we'd love to hear your feedback so we can make this mode the best it can be.
  • Which draft pool themes would you like to see?
  • We need help finding a name for this mode. Please pitch your ideas on our Discord

Minion Masters Remastered - Update


Masters!

As we're rolling up onto Minion Masters remastered, there are a few changes that will take effect and we'd like to start those conversations now.

We will be talking about the below topics on how Minion Masters Remastered will be affecting:

  • Xbox players
  • Mayhem, Draft, Adventures, and house events.
  • Minion Masters on Discord

Xbox

With a heavy heart, we've taken the immensely difficult decision to not release Minion Masters Remastered on Xbox. Whilst Minion Masters 1.0 will still be available on Xbox, our support will be minimal since we'll be focusing all our energy on the Remastered version. Over the years we have really appreciated the love and support we've received from our Xbox community. All our Xbox players will have the chance to transfer their accounts to PC and Mobile and we will do our best to support our Xbox community's transition. We will be reconsidering in the future the likeliness of re-releasing Minion Masters Remastered to Xbox but we can't make any promises yet.

Events/Game Modes

We are removing Mayhem, Draft, Adventures, and house events. These modes are not very popular and struggle to maintain a queue big enough for a good player experience. With Remastered we want to zero in and focus on our core mode. Closing all of these lowly populated modes should help to improve the overall experience of playing Minion Masters. Doing this also opens the possibility for us to work on new and exciting modes in the future, however, we do plan to try and keep the number of queues lower, to continually ensure they all remain self-sustainable.

Leaving Discord game

We will be forever leaving Discord gaming with Minion Masters Remastered and all players that are still logging into the game through Discord will have the chance to transfer their accounts up until Minion Masters Remastered is released. Once we have released the Remastered version, all players logging through Discord will not be able to anymore. We want to emphasize that this has nothing to do with our Community Channel on Discord. Discord still remains and will continue to remain our primary community channel and engagement outlet for us and our players.

So there you have it, folks, please let us know what you think on Discord as we will be monitoring your feedback closely and for any questions that you may also have as well.

We want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and passion for Minion Masters, without you we wouldn't be here.
